I was looking at the Nexus 6 factory images. It looks like it jumps from 6.0 to 7.1.1, then back to 6.0, then 7.1.1......is this an error or were the 7.1.1 beta builds ?


Also is Google still making factory images for the Nexus 6 ? I thought that development was over for it, but I am pleased to see not so.

Google is releasing three builds per month. One build for android 6.0, one for android 7.0 and one for android 7.1.1
Development was over at android 7.1.1 And all build has security patches only.

Correct, I was just confirming that the security updates were being rolled out. Then after Nov that's it huh ? Only custom development ? This is my first Nexus where development will stop :eek:/

Well, every Nexus get software updates from Google during 2 years.

Seeing all the ROMs in development/original development, the Nexus 6 is far from being dead... :good:

Cheers...

    Take a look at the "shamu" section: https://developers.google.com/android/images

    It's all there.

    EDIT: I think you are affirming that =P Yes, we're going to receive security updates from now on. 7.1.1 is the final Android version.
